Our Core Mission:

To us, travel is more than just a journey; it’s a transformative experience. When you choose to travel responsibly, you not only immerse in the beauty of new places and cultures but also support local communities, leaving a lasting positive imprint. At the heart of Link Expeditions, our dedication lies in restoring, preserving and protecting the enchanting natural wonders of Costa Rica. We celebrate its genuine communities and traditions through committed ecotourism and sustainable practices. With every expedition curated by us, you’re assured an experience that not only showcases Costa Rica’s captivating beauty but also uplifts its communities and protects its precious ecosystems.

Our Pillars:

Whenever possible we prioritize sustainable travel that takes you to beautiful natural destinations while promoting environmental education, supporting local communities, and preserving their natural and cultural heritage. This is relevant if being a responsible traveler matters to you.

Go beyond tourist traps. We offer unique experiences that immerse you deeply into Costa Rica’s less-trodden destinations, allowing you to experience authentic Costa Rica experiences lesser-known to the average traveler. Note that exploring hidden gems doesn’t mean you’ll miss out on visiting Costa Rica’s iconic destinations.

Genuine journeys are best when shared. In crafting our adventures, we make it a priority to actively involve rural communities and their families, ensuring they directly benefit from your visit. It’s an opportunity for you to experience the world not just as a traveler but as a valued guest in local communities, fostering meaningful connections.

At Link Expeditions, we don’t provide one-size-fits-all packages. Instead, we invest the time to comprehend your travel preferences and requirements. We collaborate closely with each traveler or group to craft a tailor-made itinerary, offering expert guidance throughout the process. Our goal is to guarantee that your journey is personalized, seamless, enjoyable, and free from unexpected expenses or unwanted surprises.

We carefully curate the activities and services you’ll enjoy by personally visiting and developing a deep understanding of each. We collaborate with tour operators and third-party partners who share our commitment to conservation, exemplary customer service, and a profound passion for nature. These partners strictly adhere to Costa Rica’s government-mandated insurance and permit requirements, and they have a proven track record in ecotourism. With Link Expeditions, you are going to feel safe, welcomed, and well taken care of.

We are deeply committed to fostering environmental awareness during your journey. This commitment extends beyond visits to stunning destinations, as we often provide opportunities for you to explore and learn about Costa Rica’s remarkable biodiversity and the environmental challenges it faces. This immersive approach allows you to shift from being a typical traveler to becoming a nature enthusiast, gaining insights into both positive and negative environmental practices that will enrich your understanding.

We’re dedicated to making a positive impact, and we invite you to join us in this endeavor. When you choose Link Expeditions as your travel advisor, you open doors to actively support organized rural communities and safeguard the natural world. You can achieve this by selecting the community-based experiences we endorse, or you can take a more hands-on approach by participating in volunteer opportunities aimed at preserving and restoring nature, available throughout the country.

Nature is at the core of our identity, and it will be at the heart of your journey. With us, you’ll be led to the breathtaking natural landscapes of Costa Rica that might include tropical forests, volcanoes, rivers, beaches, and diverse habitats. Your trip is an opportunity for you to link with nature on a profound level, rekindling your spirit and positively impacting your well-being.

Our Founder’s Journey

I want to share my story with you – a story of how I found my passion for travel and how it led me to create Link Expeditions, a company dedicated to providing exceptional experiences for nature-loving adventurers like you.

Travel has always been my escape from the routine of everyday life. It opens doors to inspiration, new knowledge, and the chance to surround myself with the two things I love a lot: nature and culture. Whenever I travel, I find myself humbled and ready to learn, grow, and make a positive impact in the communities I visit. It’s during these adventures that I truly feel the happiest.

But my path to becoming a travel entrepreneur wasn’t always easy. I grew up in a modest family in rural Costa Rica, where financial constraints made it difficult to explore beyond my immediate surroundings. However, my insatiable curiosity never waned. I yearned to see how people live in different parts of the world, to understand their perspectives, and to immerse myself in the beauty of exotic natural landscapes.

It was my thirst for knowledge and my determination that paved the way for my travel experiences. Through countless hours of exploring my own country and venturing into other lands, I’ve come to realize how fortunate I am to have been born in Costa Rica. This biodiverse country is truly a gem, and most of its people radiate warmth and happiness. After completing my college education, I embarked on a journey that took me from being an international tour guide to working in various roles within the tourism industry, including hotel concierge and ziplining tour guide, and others. Each opportunity taught me invaluable lessons and solidified my belief that travel is a gateway to personal growth, cultural understanding, and unforgettable moments worth sharing.

With Link Expeditions, I’ve created a platform that allows travelers like you and me, who share a deep love for nature and a desire to do the right thing and support responsible travel, to explore the world without compromising our values. I understand the struggles and frustrations you or travelers like you might have faced when trapped in β€œtouristy activities”, the uncertainty and guilt surrounding sustainable travel options, and the overwhelming feeling of choosing among numerous attractions while fearing to miss out on something truly special.

My aim is to guide you through these challenges and provide you with an experience that exceeds your expectations. At Link Expeditions, we blend our vast experience in outdoor travel across many countries in North and South America with a commitment to professionalism, meticulous attention to detail, and a genuine passion for crafting exceptional customized journeys. We’ll help you connect with nature, immerse yourself in the local culture, and create cherished memories alongside your loved ones. You can rely on our expertise and personalized guidance to design a tailor-made itinerary that aligns with your interests and preferences.

Let us embark on this adventure together, allowing you to safely explore the wonders of Costa Rica. Allow me and my team to share the best of my country and provide you with a travel experience that leaves you feeling inspired, fulfilled, and confident in your choices.
